Wind and Snow

wind over the bridgers-5890

The wind blowing the snow high up in the peaks over Bozeman Mt. 12/1/2012

 

On a recent trip to Salt Lake City along the highway just out of Three Forks, I made Arnie stop the motor home so that I could stand in the roaring wind and take this picture. My tripod was useless, the wind just blew it around with the camera perched on top. I couldn’t stand against the wind, I finally had to balance the camera on the guardrail post and snapped this picture. The only one that was not blurry. This is not easy, the concrete posts are not made to be balancing anything on.  That trip, the wind blew against us for the full 500 miles going and coming. It was a head wind both ways, with the occasional side gust that yanked  at the steering  wheel. It’s a good thing that Arnie is strong and could hold it, or we would be looking up from the side of the road for the foreseeable future.  This was and still is an awesome site.

Spring forward, was the mantra from everyone I saw yesterday. Charlene even called me to remind me. Hope you all made your early morning functions on time. The sun is out and doing it’s best to warm things up for the coming weather change. I hope it hurries up, I am in agreement with my great niece, in Idaho. I am done with the cold.
